Traveler Comments

Maria did a wonderful job explaining everything to us in English and the captain of our boat located a snake wrapped in the tree with his eagle eyes! We saw lots of wildlife and learned a lot!

Definitely a highlight thanks in part to an excellent guide - William - whose knowledge and passion was inspiring. The addition of a thunderstorm as we set off just added to the experience. Highly recommend that visitors take this trip and learn more about this vital ecosystem

Excellent knowledgeable guide - boat ride was relaxing & interesting. Next time we’ll try the kayaking option.
